    welcome, however, and will be made available to participants in the
    exhibit area. In lieu of discussants, session chairs play an active
    role as facilitators of discussion among panelists and between
    panelists and the audience.


    The last seven meetings of APLS were highlighted by keynote speakers:
    E.O. Wilson, Frans de Waal, Lionel Tiger, Francis Fukuyama, Matt
    Ridley, Arthur Caplan, and Gary Marcus.
